I don’t have a cohesive baby book for any of my kids. When they move out they’ll get a huge “pile” of digital files (photos, writing, soundbites, movies, etc.) and a small box with mementos. I’ve just never been into scrapbooking or anything related. So, in that spirit, when I found this piece of paper Read More
Grandma Lewis gave the kids a ziplock bag that was full of a variety of little balls. Some were rubber bouncy balls, some were covered in suction cups for climbing down walls, some were soft pompons. For a time, Jack was absolutely obsessed with this bag of balls. He’d carry it around along with a Read More
Jack is an outdoor kind of guy and has been so happy that we can go outside! Without coats! With rain boots! Oh, happy day! Here he is enjoying some dried leaves and sticks. (He’s age 2.)
I knit this sweater for Louritta in this green yarn that I just loved. I used the Log Cabin Baby Pullover pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. It was a very easy and fast knit that was pretty straight forward. The pink flower was crocheted by my mom and I sewed it onto a clip. It Read More
We had a lovely time outside today. I LOVE seeing little boys enjoy nature, especially when they are wearing adorable rain boots. Had lots of adventures in the treehouse Grandpa Stephen built for us. Caleb is 4 and Jack is 2 years old.

I have this long list of back-logged blogs I’ve meant to write. It is so behind that it keeps me from writing about now. Well, forget that. Even though I haven’t even introduced our new sweet daughter on this blog, I will now put up her 2 month old stats! Louritta, Age 2 Months Length: Read More
Jack hits Caleb with the knight’s sword. I intervene & deal with the fall out. This is the conversation we had after the intervention. Remember that Jack is a sweet 2-year-old with a soft, tiny voice that occasionally gets a little growly. ME: No more sword, Jackie. JACK: Okay, Mommy. No more sword. (pause) Hey Read More
It is so hard to believe that a year ago, Jack was just a tiny little newborn peanut. (Our nicknames for him are “Peanut Butter” and “Cha-cha.”) Then, I just remember being so thankful that I wasn’t pregnant anymore and wondering what kind of kid that little bundle would turn out to be. Turns out, Read More
